APT Free Seminar: Active Wheelchair Prescription Basics, Featuring Quickie 5R & 7R 

Featuring design innovation, ultralight construction and superior performance, Quickie 5R and & 7R offer an unparalleled experience for active users.  These chairs will be the stars as we work through some of the basics of active wheelchair prescription in a clear, step-by-step process designed to support successful outcomes.  Clinicians can expect to:

  • explore the ICF model as an aid to effective clinical problem solving 
  • learn about the key features and options available on Quickie active wheelchairs, including power assist options 
  • becoming familiar with the critical aspects of measurement and fit for active users
  • learn how to manipulate set-up, wheelchair configuration and option selection to enhance posture and function for active users

 

This is an interactive session designed to help clinicians improve competence when prescribing 5R and 7R, although much of the information will be applicable more widely to the Quickie active wheelchair range.  

This session is designed to benefit both intermediate and advanced clinicians.

 

Lunch and refreshments are provided. Please email training@aidacare.com.au if you have any dietary requirements.
